WELCOME TO THE
2018-19 winter BLACK CLUB
ABOUT THE NEW BLACK CLUB ACADEMY
Our Black Club, popularly known as “AAU” basketball, consists of teams that travel to local and regional tournaments to compete against peers of varying talent. Team Esface aims to expose our players to ballers whose love for basketball and commitment to improvement parallels our own. Exposure to varying styles of basketball helps us recognize the potency of our craft while steadily polishing and refining our personal brand and style.
This new Black Club academy is a “dual-impact” approach to club basketball that attacks both individual and team development. During team practices, coaches merge players’ current abilities to create a cohesive unit on the hardwood; during Team Esface skills clinics, players attack their weaknesses and steadily improve their skills to enhance what they offer their team on the court. Intense skills development workouts (built into your package) immediately before or after your practice provides players a safe haven for experimentation, helping them develop their individual style and steadily refine their skills.
The 13U & 14U classes will have at least 8 players on two teams, but no more than 11. These team rosters can adjust periodically based upon the needs of the player(s) and the team dynamic during the season. Every coach from each class will know every player along with their strengths and weaknesses, this will give us a better opportunity to service the player through multiple coaches. These teams will practice together at all times and will run an academy style offense/defense so that every player understands the system being implemented (incase they are moved from their team).
